*Scratches head*. Isn't it possible to just timestamp every request in a list of running requests, and in the beginning of each request check how long the currently processing requests have been running, and if that sum is above a specified time, fail?
OK, you get the problem that images may not load even if the main page does, but is that really worse for the end user than not getting anything? Hysteresis could also be used, so that all requests fail after the time limit have been reached once, until the total time fall under another smaller time limit. http://www.homestarrunner.com/systemisdown.html _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
